Let V be the initial ground speed and 2V be the final ground speed, in miles per minute.

The length of time travelled at the higher speed was 120 - 40 = 80 minutes

Total distance travelled =

160 = 40 V + 80*(2V) = 200 V

V = 0.8 miles/minute

Inital distance travelled at velocity V = 0.8 miles/min* 40 min = 32 miles

Final distance travelled at velocity 2V = 80*1.6 = 128 miles
